Wire up with a NEMA 6 plug and receptacle (Straight Blade or L6 "Locking")
and you should be good to go.
You can check the current draw (in Amperes) for 240 VAC, but a 20 Amp circuit
with a NEMA 6-20R should meet the need.
IF you use the "T-slot" blade style version of that 6-20R receptacle (recommend),
It will accept the NEMA 6-15P (15 amp) and 6-20P (20 amp) plugs for 240 VAC amplifiers/appliances.
BTW, with the New Hybrid and Electric vehicles -- a 240 VAC, 20 Amp circuit with a
NEMA 6-20R receptacle is being installed in many new homes (at least in the garage for vehicle charging station). Tax write-offs in some states for this installation/work associated with those vehicles.
